Bled Island, Slovenia

Slovenia’s Fairy Tale Isle Lake Bled has a small, tear shaped island reachable only by man-powered rowboats, or pletna. The journey to Bled Island is great not only to experience the leisurely lake ride but also to visit the Church of the Assumption! The current baroque church dates from 1698 and features frescoes of life […]

Ljubljana, Slovenia

Slovenia is a hidden gem in the Balkan region. The city is a close bus ride away from where I stayed at Lake Bled and makes for a relaxed day trip (or vice versa). Slovenia’s capital city is actually small enough to be explored entirely on foot in a couple hours. The University of Ljubljana is […]

Montenegro’s Old Town of Kotor

Kotor is known as one of the most well preserved medieval towns in the Mediterranean, with an abundance of squares, churches, cathedrals and museums. It only took around an hour or two to explore on foot but the cobble stone streets are windy and narrow. I’d imagine it could be hectic during prime tourist season […]

Bay of Kotor

  The drive around Montenegro’s Bay of Kotor is long but break taking, with a full view of the sea and red roofed houses dotted all around it. The shot above was taken on the way back to Croatia, where I took the 1 hour ferry and cut straight across the Bay. We visited the […]
